MAIL: firmapost@roisland.no


Håkon Røisland (b. 1965) work with contradictions and taboos related to ideologies and norms in modern society. He seek to visualize the spaces that are formed as the uncensored inner thoughts meet reality. He work mainly with Instant films, where he always combine elements beyond his control together with the motifs he have consciously chosen. The surroundings Røisland choose for his photography have always a meaning for what he want to express, and their contributions are not only on an ideological level, but on a concrete one as well. By pressing the films onto the photographed subject, a chemical process forms by particles from the photographed, blending with and affecting the films’ emulsion.
